Public Law 109-2005 requires Indiana residents to present a government-issued photo ID before casting a ballot at the polls on Election Day.

Your photo ID must meet 4 criteria to be acceptable for voting purposes. It Must:

  • 1. Display your photo
  • 2. Display your name, and the name must conform to your voter registration record. Conform does not mean identical.
  • 3. Display an expiration date and either be current or have expired sometime after the date of the last General Election
  • 4. Be issued by the State of Indiana or the U.S. government

In most cases, an Indiana driver license, Indiana photo ID card, Military ID or U.S. Passport is sufficient.

A student ID from an Indiana State school may only be used if it meets all of the 4 criteria specified above. A student ID from a private institution may not be used for voting purposes.

If you are unable or unwilling to present ID meeting these requirements, you may cast a provisional ballot. If you cast a provisional ballot, you have until noon 10 days after the election to follow up with the county election board and either provide the necessary documentation or affirm one of the law’s exemptions applies to you.

Indiana Elections: What's At Stake In 2016?

Why the 2016 Presidential Election Could Impact Your Way Of Living For Generations to Come

Democrats and Republicans The 2016 Presidential Election is crucial to both Republicans and Democrats since the next President of the United States could nominate as many as four Supreme Court justices. As many as four seats on the Supreme Court could become vacant during the next few years with four supreme court justices over the age of 80. This means the next president could have the power to transform the supreme court, and American law, for generations to come. (See Election Dates and Deadlines)

President Barack Obama The United States presidential election of 2016 is an Open Race since the Incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama is term-limited and cannot run for re-election to a third term in office.
